I've been plugging away a little here and there on the
Birds of a Feather Peace Sampler!
Closer and closer to a finish!
And it's a good thing too, because
that new stash keeps arriving!
You may recall I was laid up for several days following
the "clean and jerk" ham incident, as the hubs refers to it.
And no I did NOT raise the 20 lb ham over my head! LOL
Passing time while resting my back was a bit spendy in the end!
Glorious linens have arrived!
(L to R WDW Parchment, Lakeside Linens V Pearled Barley, R&R Abecedarian Blend, Lakeside Linens V Light Examplar)
And charts....and threads....
Blackbird Designs Feast of Friendship....the blue house and fruit bowl called to me!
And wonderful Anita had thread packs so readily available!
Have you ever ordered from Anita? If not, I highly highly recommend shopping her site!
She is uber-friendly and talk about SPEEDY delivery!
She has great prices and thread packs and you just need to go check out her shop!
This is entirely Nicole's fault! Frances Pool....*swoooooon*
(ahem...Dorothy Walpole isn't far behind!)
And then there's one of my very most favorite samplers from market....
Maria Selby Humphrey 1831 from those wonderful Blackbird Designs ladies!
I absolutely fell in love with this sampler the second I saw it!
The muted colors....
the SIZE (19x19 or so)
I can't hardly stand it!
And there's more to come too.
Unfortunately I ordered from another online source that shall remain nameless,
and they are NOT quick. I should know better....things are ALWAYS backordered
and it takes several weeks for orders to arrive. UGH!
Rachel Howells chart, linen and silks are all on the way....
to arrive someday. *SIGH*
Good thing I have other things to keep my stitching fingers busy!
I really should pick this Peace sampler back up....before I'm tempted
by any of the new stash!
But maybe one little stitch put in to something new can't hurt.....
I'm going to blame it all on the ham!
